    Re: Elvis Presley Record Collection?

    Here's E doing the later version(a cool video medley with what sounds like the "Dixieland Rocks" version) of "I got a woman/Amen" that we talked about earlier. I love how he flowed effortlessly from IGAW to Amen at 2:10 and then back to IGAW. I included Larnell Harris' version first performed on Billy Grahams program in the late 70's. I included this version only because I could easily hear Elvis singing a version similar to this. I honestly believe that Elvis would have became a full time gospel singer in the 1980's had he lived.

    Let me just throw in the original here, which is probably(not sure) where Elvis got his. This is from "Lilies of the Field" with Sidney Poitier(1963).This vocal performance was overdubbed and written by Jester Hairston. He is reknown for arranging traditional "negro spirituals".

    Lowell Fulson's Reconsider Baby.

    Elvis and Scotty Moore, they love the man so much that they actually went to see him live somewhere in '55 as they both where touring the same area. Much to their surprise, Mr. Fulson was not only aware of Elvis sun records, but spot him and Scotty in the audience and asked to join him for a jam on stage, and yes, it was Reconsider Baby the one song they jam with. Awesome isn't it?

    Elvis recorded the son in '60 for the Elvis is Back album, and played it live a bunch of times, from the Hawaii '61 concert, to his vegas season in '69, to his Madison Square Garden gigs, and even as late as '77.

    From Elvis home town and original home label Sun Records, this is Carl Mann's '59 single: I'm Comin Home. Now that's a song that must meant a lot for Elvis while in the army isn't it?

    This was fun, thank you! I'm always amazed how Elvis could take those old songs, spice them up in his own unique way and come out way ahead of the original singers to the point where you forgot the songs weren't always his.

    Re: Elvis Presley Record Collection?

    Okey, so here I am, catching up with this old thread about the stuff that Elvis must have loved. This time with a Jerry Lee number, both raised in the south, educated by Sam Philips, and just as The Beatles vs. The Stones in the 60's, back in the 50's they where taken rivals, although actually they where friends from each other. Yet as much as Elvis liked Jerry Lee, in 1970 he kind of needed to let us know who could rock harded from both.

    I really like Roy Hamilton, he could really sing. I don't think he is giving the credit he deserves.



    Love Elvis...The Greatest

    I'm sure Elvis had to get a thrill out of this song that his idol added a little tribute in the song for Elvis. You will see at 2:13. I really like this song.

    Elvis was a huge fan Roy Hamilton, and you can see how much Elvis vocal style comes from Hamilton as well as from Clyde McPantter. For sure two of his top favourites.

    Yes I do believe to that Roy Hamilton is way underrated. He was a unique singer. I love him too.

    Yes I believe this one comes from his Chips Moman produced American Sessions at the time he and Elvis meet while both recording there. Probably a nod after Elvis gave him the song Angelica, a song that Chips gave to Elvis as one of the potential big hit singles for him during that session, but Elvis gave it to Hamilton who was struggling gettin new hit material.

    Yeah, I wish Elvis would have recorded Angelica but Roy does a great job on the song.
